I'm back in iPad mode and using Autosketch Pro6. This study of a Little Owl was made after a recent visit to  the International Bird's of Prey Centre at Newent, Glos. It was one of the birds they were flying and I've made use of sketches and my own photographs. I'm planning a set of prints in signed limited editions for showing later this summer.

Dudley Zoo revisited.

After a wet Sunday visit with TWASI members I've  just made a second visit to try to sketch their newly born Snow Leopard cub. He prove to be elusive and vanished into a back room in their 'house'.
Maybe the sea of faces peering through the viewing window scared him. Will have to try a screen capture from the BBC website to work from.

Currently I'm adapting a method used by Ralph Thompson (look at his book 'Dance of the Brush' or trawl the web).  Here is a page of quick studies.
